Eskisehirspor's Ghana international Akaminko close to full recovery

Eskisehirspor defender Jerry Akaminko is close to making full recovery.

The highly rated centre back sustained an ankle injury while on international duty with Ghana in June.

Akaminko fell awkwardly during Ghana’s pre World Cup friendly and has been on the sidelines since.

The Ghana international has returned to first team training this week and is expected to return to the squad by the end of the year.

Eskisehirspor have felt the Ghanaian defenders absence having conceded a total of 15 goals in 9 games – the second highest amount in the league.

The former Orduspor player was linked with a move to Fulham last January.

Akaminko made 36 appearances for Eskisehirspor last season.
